Willie Nelson and Neil Young are teaming up for another of Willie’s benefit concerts. But it won’t be America’s farmers on the receiving end of this one. This time, the two recording stars will be bashing the Keystone XL pipeline.
This is really sad, if you ask me. First, I liked Willie and Neil’s records. Records that made them famous….pressed onto vinyl or CDs….both of which are crude oil by-products. So I don’t take this as merely ironic that these two, who built their legacies on something made from oil….are now turning against its safest distribution.
The Keystone would create over 40-thousand jobs, add over 3 Billion dollars to our economy, and is by far the most environmentally friendly way to ship oil versus truck or train. Willie…Neil….you should know better.
